The Esplanade, that is the big square between the Kongresshaus and the “Coupole” in Biel, would normally be an empty space. Not so during the winter months! Until the end of January, Biel is home to Eisplanade, Switzerland’s largest mobile outdoor ice rink. Visitors can enjoy 2’450 square meters of pure winter magic: skating with friends and family, enjoying mulled wine, fondue, music, and other animations.

There is no entry fee for the ice rink, you only hire ice skates – in case you do not have any of your own – and the fun can start! Whatever your level of proficiency, everybody is welcome. Eisplanade, surrounded by dozens of fir trees, offers an enchanting atmosphere for big and small, beginners and pros.

But skating is not all you can do! How about an initiation to Curling? Or maybe you enjoy art? From the upper floor of the central building art is projected onto the façade of the Kongresshaus. At the entrance, there is a large stage where cultural performances and concerts take place. Other events are also on the agenda. On 10. January, for example, there is a short track speed skating show run.

If you are feeling hungry after all the activity, you can choose from a wide range of Swiss specialties such as cheese fondue, tarte flambée, Seeländer Platte (with specialties from the region of the three lakes), Entrecôte au beurre Café de Paris and many more… a bar area over two floors invites you to chill.

Eisplanade is open every day, from 10:00 AM to 10:00 PM, until 31. January 2018. If you are planning an unforgettable day on the ice rink with friends, family or colleagues, you can contact the organizers directly in order to coordinate your event: info@eisplanade.ch

Good to know for parents: there is a childcare service where you can give the little ones in loving hands. They will not be bored! Many schools and kindergartens also embrace the opportunity to go skating for free with the kids!

The project Eisplanade was initiated by Kenan Sahin, a Digital Strategist, and Stöh Grünig, a photographer.
